False-Heads - alternative rock from England


A subdued atmospheric charge rolls into the room as False-Heads temper the music with a fog that veils the compositions in a shroud, leaving the listener focussed on the shifting shapes hidden from clear view. The overall effect of this technique is to give the quartet something of a sense of mystery, which suits the lyrical content that explores a sense of uncertainty about established norms and the package creates a highly charged and slightly oppressive feel.

The hiatus of moving to study left the band in something of a flux for a while, after a bright early start in 2011. Having recently introduced a fourth member to the band False-Heads is able to add considerable context to the material and there is something slightly Scandinavian in influence about the sounds as a filtered shoegaze guitar can be heard echoing in the background.

With a refreshed lease on life there is no reason False-Heads is not set to become a band who more people get to know in short order as this style of music suits the times like a glove and I look forward to hearing how things settle down and the band develops.

A new EP – Tunnel Vision was released on the 17th July 2013.
